Only yesterday I received your letter dated September 30; at the same time, the letter addressed to Gizella arrived here. I hear from her that she has already replied and dispelled the suspicion of her being insulted. The decision on the last evening was that we, namely the “Committee members,” would eat together. I was no longer able to inform you about the change in this plan.
I, too, can report only pleasant things to you about my affects in these last days. The ground on which we will certainly always find ourselves, is, of course, science. All fog dissipates in its light, and in that way also the ridiculous little irritations of the summer months. In the summer I was probably only disappointed that the planned collaborative work was left undone. So, the counterpart to the Palermo case!
